Where is it from? If possible, rub it on a piece of unglazed porcelain (back of a tile or bottom "ring" on a teacup or plate) and check out the color of the mark (this is called a streak test).

When I get home from work I'll let you know on the streak test.. Upshur County is where almost every sample I have is from. Gilmer, TX is surrounded by hills or mountains each with a different make of rock. I know there were mines there in certain areas that supposedly date to native American times.
